centrifugal compressor analysis
2 Attachment(s)
Dear all
this is Farzad, and I want ti simulate a centrifugal compressor, but I have some problems.
I use blade-generator and I exported it to design-modeler,I mesh it, now I face a problem in fluent(solver) sectio.
1- I use MRF , but I don't know the exact rotation direction, is it (Z) or (-Z)?

2- in tutorials they use oressur inlet and pressure outlet, why? do we must know these quantities?

3- after all when I run calculations, after few iterations I observe REVERSED FLOW.

I appreciate your helps in advance.

this is my mail problem:

I am doing CFD analysis of compressor in FLUENT.
but i am facing the problem of REVERSED FLOW at inlet as well as outlet with Pressure outlet condition.
i am using density based solver.Is it appropriate??
If i am using IDEAL GAS as fluid then it shows very large values of ranges pressure, temperature and velocity.""
